May Hill Class comprises of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children, aged 4-7. This year (2016/17) there are twenty four children in the class and they are taught by Mrs Tyler (class teacher) and Mrs Connelly (teaching assistant).
The younger children (Reception) follow the national Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which covers seven areas of learning:-

-Understanding the world
-Expressive art and design
The curriculum is very play based with the children taking a lead in their learning, supported by the adults. They are encouraged to use a wide range of resources in both the inside and outside areas. Continuous assessment enables the staff to judge when the children are ready for more formal learning.
In Years 1 and 2 the children follow the National Curriculum through termly topics which enable the development of skills and the acquisition of knowledge in a stimulating, creative and fun way.
